Question:Which appliances do you unplug?

I've been reading that you can save electricity (money and energy) by unplugging appliances when they're not in use. Do you do this? Which ones do you unplug?

Answer:

I unplug the items that we don't use on a daily basis. Toaster, coffee maker, blender. I also unplug my hair dryer when I leave in the morning. I tried unplugging the TV during the day since nobody is home, but it messed up the cable.

Answer:

I unplug the toaster, coffee maker and blender -- all which sit on my counter. I try to unplug the computers, but it doesn't go over well with my husband. Is that too much or would unplugging two laptops help?
